WHY I ROGUE (NICK RINELL)

July 14, 2016

I joined the Rogues Den group as part of a natural progression following Logan, Brent Whitman and Darren Nichols from other groups as we watched them fall apart and drift so far from their original purpose that there was no correcting their course and it was time to move on.

I believe that Logan is currently one of the most level headed individuals with in the tacti-cool community who is trying to accomplish something besides selling his wares and this is evidenced by the Rogues Den. I accepted invitation into the den in the hopes of finding individuals who were capable of communicating intelligently with those they disagree with. People who seek to better not only themselves but others. The kind of people you look to when everything goes belly up. A group I could use as a sounding board when I questioned myself. 

So far the people within the Den have far exceeded the expectations, there are always outliers, and I hope in time they willingly move on but if they don't they are certainly a minority with in the group.

For my part within the group, and any group I seek common ground. We live in a society of extremes where few are willing to even discuss that middle ground exists and I think that will eventually be our downfall. So as they say, impact your sphere of influence and seek to increase it.

This leads both sides of an argument to utilize not only inaccurate data for decision making but readily gives the other side flaming arrows to fire back. Unfortunately along with the truth exiting stage left it took civility along for the trip. The study was abandoned for the cave by men and the hard choices are left to what will gain the individual the most digital likes. The currency of doing the right thing has dropped in value like a third world currency in the middle of a violent revolution.

The story goes there was a small team in Afghanistan working the Pak border.  They were new on the ground and decided to reach out to the local elders in order to show respect.  What better way to build rapport than to host them all for a meal.  Hasty preparations and poorly worded invitations went out for a meal to be hosted in a local village within the week.  Now this little team arrived of their shiny new four wheelers and barely moon dusted kit early to make sure things went smoothly.  This sort of thing can make or break your rotation very easily.
